Turns the material mostly grayscale to conserve ink. Add the rules or a score tracker on the paper itself? Marks a few squares as possible starting positions. For a really short or really long game. Uses simple icons for all types, instead of realistic illustrations.

I’ve used the fonts Mail Ray Stuff (headings, thick) and Poppins (body, thin). The latter is freely available on Google Fonts, the first was received from 1001fonts.

Idea, rules, code and assets are completely mine. A generative AI was used for some parts, especially the animals, though parts were edited or redrawn by me. (If you ask the AI to create a Wolf Spider for example, a common animal in Australia, it just blends a Wolf and a Spider … while getting the number of legs wrong. Every time.)

This idea started when I woke up one morning and had this pressing thought about a kangaroo game. By the time I got downstairs and could write it down, it had already evolved into a simple but powerful mechanic that could sustain a whole game.

This might be the simplest One Paper Game I ever made, while having a lot of depth and a theme that makes total sense.

That was a good morning.

Below is a quick image (from my cheap phone) of one early test game we played.

As usual, my players stubbornly insisted on complicated icons and aggressively crossing out squares from opponents who just blocked their move ;) Otherwise, this is fairly representative of what a finished game looks like.
